No disrespect to the Army All-American Game, which is plenty important in its own right, but no high school all-star exhibition holds a candle to the one hosted each year by Under Armour.
The top 14 players on the 247Sports composite participated in this year's spectacle, though ninth-ranked Tony Brown missed the actual game with an injury sustained in practice. Of the top 21 recruits in the nation, only quarterback Kyle Allen and running backs Joe Mixon and Sony Michel didn't attend.
It's tough to launch a career in an all-star game, with so many rules in place to sanitize the game and keep players healthy. Still, a guy like Vernon Hargreaves III kickstarted an All-American campaign in St. Petersburg, Fla., last season, so the game is not quite meaningless, either.
These grades shouldn't be taken as an end-all, be-all scouting metric. Even those who didn't make a statement on Thursday remain 5-star guys.
Regardless, here's a look at how the top 10 participating players performed.
